Heroine lipstick...

Okay today I tested out one of the new lipsticks from the new Wonder Woman/MAC collaboration collection for Spring.

I really love the red star on the tube - sorry, I'm a packaging whore.

So like I mentioned yesterday, the frost formula usually dries my lips so I made sure I had my tube of Kiehl's lip balm on hand. This seemed to do the trick - as my lipstick wore on I didn't feel any tightness on my lips. I still felt that the frostiness was beginning to wear me. I think its just because I'm not use to this much frostiness - fine glitter yes, but metallic looking frost? Not so much. However, I was pleasantly surprised:
I guess I will be keeping this lipstick!

I paired this with MAC Hover lip pencil. Hover is described as a Rich Caramel Brown on the website but on me it pulls a bit red/terracotta. It works well with Heroine.

As for my eyes, I went with an Army/Olive green theme:
I used UD 24/7 Glide Eye Pencil on my lids and smudged with my finger. I also smudged this with my #219 pencil brush on my bottom lashline. On top of that I layered Chanel's Vert Khaki on the lid, NARS Nepal was applied to my crease and MAC Arena applied to the brow bone. I finished with MAC Haute and Naughty Black mascara.

Swatch line up:

L to R:
Heroine Lipstick
Hover Lip Pencil (both MAC)
UD 24/7 Glide Eye Pencil Stash (dark golden green)
Chanel Vert Khaki (dark olive green w/slight golden sheen)
NARS Nepal (champagne/rose gold)
MAC Arena (soft gold peach)

I used the Golden Lariat MSF on my cheeks. Yes, I realize I owe you guys a review on that product.



  1. Pretty! the frost finish actually is flattering on you. I'm scared of frosts too LOL

    and how gorgeous is the Chanel Khaki Vert!

  2. Thanks Jen! Yeah it's fun to rediscover eye shadows you forgot you have.

    I don't think this will get me to wear a plethora of frost lipsticks - this is a one-time deal haha!

    Yes, I am craving a Super Friends marathon myself!
